The roots of the distinguished German surname Juncken lie in the former duchy of Swabia. The name is derived from the Middle High German term "junc herre," which literally means "young gentleman;" however, the term was commonly applied to a man of gentle birth who was not yet ranked with the nobility, such as a young man who had not yet been knighted, or the son of a noble lady who had married a man of a lower class.

Juncken Early Origins



The surname Juncken was first found in Swabia, where it is thought to have first emerged. The first known bearers of the name were Berhtoldus and Burchardus dicti Junkerer, who were burghers in Uberlingen in 1295. The young Juncken family became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation, and played a major role in the development of medieval Swabian society.
